Local action group wins first anti-social behaviour order

Isleworth man sentenced following threatening behaviour

The threatening behaviour of a 28-year-old Isleworth man has been successfully targeted by the Brentford Chiswick & Isleworth Anti-Social Behaviour Action Group.

The group was granted its first anti-social behaviour order against Mark Price by Feltham Magistrates Court on Thursday (1 April). The post-conviction order, which applies to the whole area of the London Borough of Hounslow, prohibits him from:

BEHAVING in a disorderly, threatening, abusive or insulting manner;
ENTERING any shop or commercial premises whilst drunk;
BEING drunk in a public place;
CARRYING a pointed or bladed article in a public place.

The London Borough of Hounslow’s Anti-Social Behaviour Coordinator Sarah Sweiry said the group’s first order added to the success of the borough’s two other action groups.

“This is an exciting first milestone for the Brentford, Chiswick and Isleworth action group,” Ms Sweiry said.
“We commend the court for recognising that the community deserves protection from this individual whose drunken behaviour been a source of constant distress for local residents and businesses.

“Even though this is the group’s first order, the members have been working actively in the community to curb destructive behaviour, particularly with regard to young people, through the use of acceptable behaviour contracts and other measures.”

The latest order takes the total number of orders achieved by the borough’s three action groups to 11. On 3 March, an order was granted against 25-year-old Matthew Slate of Stanwell, for offences including drugs obstruction, theft and criminal damage. His order prohibits him from travelling in the front seat of any privately-owned motor vehicle in the borough; discarding hypodermic needles in public places; possessing items made or adapted to use crack cocaine; trespassing; giving false details to police; and entering any shop or retail outlet without the means to pay for any goods.

Also last month, the court dealt a two-year order against persistent shoplifter Davinder Singh Brar, of Southall, prohibiting the 33-year-old from entering central Hounslow and the Bull’s Bridge Business Park in Southall, and from entering any shop with an empty plastic or carry bag.
